Go for the Gold ... and Red ... and Purple
Or as we say around here...Reach for a Rainbow

Colorful produce is packed with disease-fighting plant compounds, so when you shop, reach for a rainbow.

  1. Designate a color-a-day. Maybe Mondays are yellow, with grapefruit, golden apples, or corn starring in meals, while Tuesdays are purple with plum and eggplant.

  2. Get the kids involved and go for a theme: Build a green pizza with emerald bell peppers and artichokes, or a red produce-infused chili.

  3. Vary the rainbow -- pick up a new-to-you fruit or veggie the next time you shop.
